Asperger’s Are Us is the first comedy troupe composed of people diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome. As seen on HBO and at the Tribeca Film Festival, they have performed more than 100 original sketch shows in 10 countries since 2010. The performers do not poke fun at or mention Asperger's nor did they form to prove that autistic people can be funny.

Since 1911, Children’s of Alabama has provided specialized medical care for ill and injured children, offering inpatient and outpatient services throughout central Alabama. Ranked among the best pediatric medical centers in the nation by U.S. News & World Report, Children’s provided care for youngsters from every county in Alabama, 42 other states and seven foreign countries last year, representing more than 677,000 outpatient visits and more than 15,000 inpatient admissions.
